What you are really looking for is cvs. I can not imagine programming
without it, its very helpful even if you are the only person working on
the project and work from the same machine all the time. Not only will you
get proper backup and version management, checkout-modify-commit-rm-rf
cycle can also increase your focus on what you are trying to achieve and
hence effeciency.
